Zombie Mania

I saw Zombieland this weekend and was blown away by the witty, well delivered script. Woody Harrelson - amazing as a zombie-killing redneck. Jesse Eisenberg’s performance of an unlikely geek hero ROCKED. You felt Emma Stone's determination as the gritty, suspicious girl, looking out for her younger sister. And Abigail Breslin proved to be as full of gumption as her Little Miss Sunshine character back in 2006. In fact that’s one of the reasons I loved Zombieland – because of the dysfunctional family the characters become (similar to LMS).

Zombie movies really commit. I mean, they're not satisfied with giving you a localized scare. No creature killing off a few schmucks in a small town. Nope. Zombies want us to fear for the world. And in this age of global warming, mutating viruses and a bottle of hand sanitizer beside your sunscreen - so we should.
In the meantime, why wait for the real thing when we can partake in zombie mania while we still enjoy pizza over human flesh? With the big H around the corner, I thought it fitting to point you to a few zombie related sites. Get out your hair mousse (makes great ooze)!

And if you’re really adventurous, find out if your city/town/angry village is participating in World Zombie Day this October 11th. Check out the Myspace page for more details:
